AFM 45 harvester head

AFM 45 is effective harvesting head for thinning and final felling done with small and medium-sized forest machines. An exact delimbing is made with four knives and a non-sliding four motor feeding. Tree handling capacity is optimized for small and middle sized stems. AFM 45 is equipped with powerful hydraulics and the automatic chain tensioning to ensure the efficient felling and cutting in all conditions. Accurate measuring is ensured by a hydraulic length measuring device and front knife diameter measuring. AFM 45 is optionally fitted with multi tree equipment for integrated logging.
